Norwalk students celebrate Wild Hair Day

One student asked if the cockroaches in Brylee Campbell’s hair were real.

“No, it’s fake,” said the 9-year-old daughter of Scott and April.

But the Pleasant Elementary student had a host of other things in her hair — sunglasses, miniature tennis shoes, grapevines and Band-Aids.

“The way I got my hair like this is I woke up extra early and I got in the shower. While I was in the shower, my mother gathered up all my stuff,” said Campbell, who was celebrating Wild Hair Day with other Norwalk elementary school students Monday.

Bella Hernandez wore a colorful hat that resembled a birthday cake. Her older sister Desiree, now a Norwalk Middle School student, had the hat when she turned 8.

“We bought it,” said Bella, the daughter of Pete Hernandez and Carrie Maurer. “I wore it because it was a little funny because it wasn’t my birthday and I could fool some people.”

Addison Gibson wore a clear Starbucks on her head, the idea of her stepmother, Sam Platte. Bobby pins were used to attach the up to the 8-year-old girl’s hair.

“My hair is the coffee and the cotton balls are the cream,” said the daughter of Scott Gibson and Kim Stewart. “It didn’t feel weird at all.”
